465 History Project
Ballard and Nancy Wick, along with several others, have been collecting
items for some time for the Troop 465 history project, and would
like your input and help.
you have any photos, news articles, personal stories that you would
like to scan, and send us, or let us borrow them to scan them for
this history project, it would be most helpful.
Warner is putting a draft document together for John Ballard to
edit. We would like to have a first cut edited version by the end
of 2017 if possible. We would then have several review meetings
where we could use your comments and inputs. We have a number of
items, including all the yearly rosters, but could always use more
stories of your memories of the Troop.
addition to the history document, we plan to set up a history museum
in the not too distant future to display the photos and other articles.
Many of these items will also enhance our website.
of the items needed are a list of the Troop activities and their
locations over the years, such as, canoeing, kayaking, whitewater,
backpacking, hiking, camping, summer camps, training, exploring
caves, historical trips, Philmont treks, Seabase trips, Eagle projects,
Courts of Honor, and many more.
many of you helping (both past and present Troop members and families)
this can be a very rewarding project!!!
also need photographs of the Vaughn Rd Scout hut, or maybe someone
could take some current pictures of it.
submit your items to Dan Warner at firstname.lastname@example.org,
or call him at 678-488-5925, or stop by the Scout hut on Monday
